The Alchemical Salt and Its Taste of Infinitude

The Alchemical Salt and Its Taste of Infinitude | Hermetic philosophy and alchemy | Scoop.it
“Yet the real carrier of life is the individual. He alone feels happiness, he alone has virtue and responsibility and any ethics whatever. The masses and the state have nothing of the kind. Only man as an individual human being lives; the state is just a system, a mere machine for sorting and tabulating the masses.”

Sophia: Gnostic Archetype of Feminine Wisdom

Sophia: Gnostic Archetype of Feminine Wisdom | Hermetic philosophy and alchemy | Scoop.it

The Gnostics recognized the condition of exile as more than an event in history.  They saw it as having a profound cosmic and even transcosmic dimension.  The human spirit, they held, is quite literally a stranger in a strange land.  "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child," laments the American spiritual.  The Gnostics would have agreed and might have been tempted to replace "sometimes" with "always".

 

The exile may indeed find himself in a dark land, but his very awareness of the darkness can also reveal a light on the path to freedom.  So also, the awareness of our alieness and recognition of our place of exile for what it is are the first great steps on the path of return.  We begin to rise as soon as we realize that we have fallen.
The predicament of exile and alienation is not confined to humanity nor does it originate at the human level.  Long before there was a cosmos as we know it, a great drama of exile and return was played out in the story of the divine feminine being named Sophia.  Having resided in the lofty height of eternal Fullness...

The Meaning of Life | Hermetic philosophy and alchemy | Scoop.it
The image of God in you has all of the answers for you, but you need to find them for yourself by looking within. What is the Meaning of Life? You’ll have to answer that for yourself, but perhaps it is more properly put to you as follows: “What is the Meaning of Your life?”

I, Mercurius

I, Mercurius | Hermetic philosophy and alchemy | Scoop.it
The cave we explore is the unconscious, which is the greatest part of the human psyche. It is a vast territory, every bit as big as the external Universe, because the Universe is contained within it, but comparatively little is known about it. We know it makes our heart beat, our lungs breathe and our cells reproduce, in addition to sending us inscrutable messages through dreams and visions, but further explanation and research is needed. Desperately needed!

The Unveiling of Origin | Soul Spelunker

The Unveiling of Origin | Soul Spelunker | Hermetic philosophy and alchemy | Scoop.it
I see Gebser’s Origin as similar to what Hermeticism calls The All. Speculating further, one also finds similarity between Origin and Giordano Bruno’s idea of God. Bruno’s theological thought stemmed from an anti-Neoplatonic cosmology, but seemed to embrace a Neoplatonic theology. He agrees with Nicholas of Cusa and Plotinus that God was totally beyond every concept and knowledge. In fact, as Plotinus asserted, God is even beyond ‘being,’ understood as ‘being something specific and determinable’ (Mendoza 140). Gebser views Origin as the ground from which all things spring forth. But this originary presence is not to be viewed as a telos, or as some origin in the past. Origin is non-temporal and non-spatial in every way. It is ever-present.

Soul Spelunker » The New Consciousness

Soul Spelunker » The New Consciousness | Hermetic philosophy and alchemy | Scoop.it
The new consciousness that is emerging is, first of all, not a phenomenon we should view as yet another rung on what Saint John Climacus called the scala paradisi, or “ladder of divine ascent.” Western man is obsessed with climbing higher and higher, as in “climbing the corporate ladder, or “making it to the top.” In spiritual matters, the general consensus is that one draws closer to God if one ascends into the heavens. Why the preoccupation with an upward path? Why is heaven up and hell down? It is because we still view reality is terms of space, whether it is two-dimensional or three-dimensional. The West has been consumed with space since the advent of what Gebser calls the mental-rational mode of consciousness. One of the milestones of this obsession was when a human stepped out onto the lunar surface in 1969. The new consciousness will supersede spatial considerations. Three-dimensionality will be transcended to include the fourth dimension of time.
